    But I think it's because Tyra overused the word fierce.

    According to the emasculating Sr8-acter's it's more out of control than ever.
    but, yeah, I see a day, not to long from now, young guys will be whining and wishing for the old days, as there will be no "seen" what so ever.

    all the "fun" guys died in the 80's. The boring people lived. It was evolutionary pressure.

    Somewhere there's a giant disco in the sky, and all the hot guys are dressed like the Village People.icon_sad.gif

    If all the race threads are to be believed, if gay was the new black no one would want to date it.

    Why is stability and normalcy boring? For the first time, being gay is actually being viewed as normal and a lot of gays are seeing that they can pursue stable, open lives without the constraints of being judged.

    Author: "But why are we trying to be just like straight people? When did they become the barometer of who we should be? Behind that smiling image of a happy family, more often than not you’ll find heartache, deception, lies and cheating (or wait…is that just my family?) Why is this the ideal we’re trying to emulate, and more importantly, why are we willing to sacrifice and tone down our identity in the process?"

    AO: It's an interesting time. A lot of people view their children as their "legacy" to continue the human race. Now gays have that opportunity. Maybe not having that choice in the past forced gays to leave their own legacy in art and politics.

    Author: "You don’t tell a kid who’s being bullied to try and fit in and become like the kids who are bullying him. You tell him to embrace who he is, and that one day, the world will see him for the unique and amazing person he is. In the same way, we shouldn’t be afraid of our own unique identity, our past or our sexuality. We are an amazing group of diverse people who have made, and will continue to make the world, a better place to live in."

    AO: Speak for yourself author. Most people hide their identity to avoid discrimination or bullying in unfriendly areas. Nobody wants a harder life, but as Tina Turner has said, it was my life and I did it my way (talking about Frank Sinatra's song playing at her wedding and the hardships she faced from birth to domestic violence).

    Author: "You can call us outrageous, you can call us crazy, but whatever we do or say, let’s never give anyone a reason to call us boring."

    AO: Haha not all of us want to be outrageous or crazy. I don't necessarily agree with how overused the word masculine appears, in the gay community, but most of us don't want to be flaming queens -- those that do more power to them.

    Honestly, I don't think there should be a stigma of the gays who happen to meld in with "normal" society. Let them be who they are. Who are you to say that they are trying to be something they're not.

    The only thing that gets grating is when said "normal" gay ostracize another gay who isn't like them. I remember someone asking me why do I dress the way I do and why am I so quiet and kind of fem (I'm an introvert and I'm soft spoken...) and said I'm an embarrassment to gay men. This was coming from someone who claimed he was "masculine" and "normal". I've gotten comments similar to this (usually online so whatever) and while I try not to let it get to me, I'm still human and I do feel sort of resentment that festers inside of me. :/

    But nevertheless, I don't care if gays blend in with "normal" people. If it makes their life easier and more happy, more power to them.

    Queens have been having stable lives all along, just it wasn't visible. As for being judged well everyone gets and judges people all the time, that aint going to stop.

    Be a good point to remember not to judge and disapprove of queens that choose to not get involved in all this straight crap like marriage etc then huh? Let them be too?

    Well, I was not judging...I was only assuming(not confirming) after reading it. I don't know whether assuming something based on observation(not superficial observation) is considered as judgmental or not. I personally don't think it is!
    However I regret for guessing the writer's mind/attitude like a pessimist.

    Exactly! Because the more normal we are, then the likelihood of acceptance from straight people will be higher and growing. I don't know about you guys but I adore my straight friends (male and female) and just like my gay friends, I wouldn't mind building more friendships.
